I always thought Steampunk was what ruined Steampunk.
Dread Pirate Roberts
Some of it is actually pretty good. When they start adding gratuitous gears to everything, that's when I draw the line on it. Some of the more subtle stuff I like quite a bit.
Like any other art form that involves putting things together, you're going to get a lot of drek until they start having some kind of skills test before one is allowed to patronize the craft store.
I'm so mad change beat me to saying that.

ono for the first time in their life bland middleclass fortysomethings have something to be mad about besides the politics of boingboing.

I don't remember the "Shake it, baby" line from when I sang this in grade school.

Stop tacking the word "punk" onto every God-damned thing. Cyberpunk, steampunk, fucking DIESELPUNK? What in Hell constitutes dieselpunk?
It's only "punk" when the technology is utilized by the counter-culture against the mainstream.
There's been a lot of cyberpunk fiction; renegades and radicals using computer technology against the establishment. I've yet to see any true steampunk. All the stories that bill themselves as such are either alternative history or Victorian-themed fantasy. All the protagonists are part of the system or at least mainstream society.
